About the training

The IL-NET National Training & Technical Assistance (T&TA) Center, operated by ILRU in collaboration with NCIL, APRIL, and the University of Montana Rural Institute and RTC:Rural, helps CILs and SILCs to build strong and effective organizations.

Following the August 2023 OILP Quarterly Connection on fiscal management best practices (, we heard your feedback for more in-depth training on this topic. This training expands on fiscal management best practices to address specific issues including indirect cost rates, time and effort reporting, and internal controls and risk mitigation. The presenters reinforce the importance of fiscally sound practices to ensure accuracy and compliance. 

The training will:

  • Ensure understanding of applying Indirect Cost Rates and de minimis.
  • Review time and effort reporting best practices.
  • Expand on practices to ensure due diligence and mitigate financial risk.

Target Audience

Staff and Board members of Centers for Independent Living (CILs), Statewide Independent Living Councils (SILCs), and Designated State Entities (DSEs).

Please note: There was an issue with the American Sign Language (ASL) and Spanish audio on the training recording below and we are working to resolve those issues as quickly as possible.
